MTV killed the music video star

MTV has finally come to the realization that for the past 10 years, they aren’t music television, they’re trashy, drunk, whoreality television.  Que fist pump

Is it a coincidence that when MTV launched in 1981 the first music video played was “Video Killed the Radio Star”? The company did the same thing to the music video star.

See below for the beginning of the demise of music videos:

In MTV’s infant years, the station brought light to generation icons such as Michael Jackson (RIP) and Madonna (you can stop making music now).  The station has evolved into shows glamorizing teen pregnancy.  I much rather watch Maury “My teen is out of control” I WANNA SEE DWAYNE WEST.

I digress.

Fact of the matter is that should have happened a long time ago, at least when TRL went off the air. The only show that stood true from the beginning, minus them playing 30 sec clips of the video if playing the video at all.

As long at FUSEtv continues to do what they’re doing I’ll be happy. For now I’ll just sit and wait until the premiere of Jersey Shore 2. That’s the only thing MTV is good for now anyways, Right?
